In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Kailua Beach Park and Lanikai Beach. Let the collections at USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Kapolei). Next up on the itinerary: trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, take an in-depth tour of Iolani Palace, and explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

To see where to stay, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, read Honolulu planning site .

Drive from Kahuku to Honolulu in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Traveling from Kahuku in July, expect somewhat warmer with lows of 75°F in Honolulu. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
